Point gained not two lost - Celtic



Bloemfontein Celtic might have let a 2-1 lead slip in the last minutes against Ajax Cape Town in the Absa Premiership on Tuesday might but coach Clinton Larsen said he saw it “as one point gained rather than two lost”.

But the Celtic boss did show signs of exasperation as he described warnings he had given his players not to be complacent against their struggling opponents.

“I warned them first that Ajax’ position on the log is deceiving and then I warned them that the game would not be easy. Ajax rarely go three games without a good result.

“It was disappointing to give away the first goal from a corner because we’ve done well very dealing with opponent’s set pieces lately. That’s one thing we pride ourselves on.”

But even after the frustration of seeing the hosts clamour back with a goal just nine minutes from the end, Larsen praised the performance of Celtic, who remain in sixth place in the league standings.

“We’ve tried to install a fighting spirit and a never-say-die attitude and I’m seeing it now from my players on a regular basis,” Larsen added.
